I Miss Summer Already

How was your weekend?

Ours was marvelously relaxing!  For once, we didn’t have a bunch of commitments or errands and could just go with the flow.  Saturday, after I got home from work (I just work a few hours on Saturday mornings), Sassy wanted to go to the library.  The answer was yes, of course.  Free books?  I’m in!  Plus, I had a couple of books that needed to be renewed.


Sassy was on the hunt for a few books on drawing.

She also likes to check out their DVD selections.  We went home with Bambi II.  I didn’t even know there was a second Bambi movie!  Guess we’ll be watching it sometime this week before it’s due in one week.

At home, OMG Becky was working on introducing one of our cats to Stella the Boxer.  The cat was on the other side of the door.  OMG Becky was trying to get him to play with Stella under the dog.  They had done it the day before and it seemed to go well.

Stella was very interested in playing.

The cat, on the other hand, was not.

Maybe next time.

Saturday night, I wanted to be outside, even though it was still 90-some degrees with crazy, high humidity.  I didn’t care.  I wanted to be out there!  I talked Sassy into going with me for a walk.  Though she decided to ride instead.

We didn’t get to go as long as I had hoped, the sun was going down fast.


I am not a fan of fall!  Why anyone would like the fact that it gets dark so darn early is beyond me.  It was barely after 7:00 PM and we were rushing to get back home.  Ugh.  I want daylight until after 9:00 PM, just like in the middle of summer!

Sunday was spent at church in the morning and then enjoying this.  And this was before Sassy loaded it up with all the flotation devices!  She likes options.

Ah!  This was the last weekend for my parents’ pool.  It closes this Friday.  Sassy, my parents, my older brother, his family and I all enjoyed it thoroughly.  The water was perfect and so was the sun and a gentle breeze.  I hung out for three hours floating around in there.  Sassy stayed for six hours!  Girl can’t get enough!  I think she’s going to miss the pool the most.

Are you looking forward to fall?  WHY?!

What did you do this weekend?

    I like lots of things about fall – the leaves, the weather, FOOTBALL but I hate knowing that it means winter will soon be here!!!
    Doesn’t feel much like fall – 100+ the past couple of days – I’m trying to soak up as much of the sun and heat as I can to get me through the winter.
    Love the pictures of Sassy and Stella trying to play with the cat.

      I’m not a fan of the leaves. They belong on the trees, not the ground. 😦 I can’t even think about winter. Maybe if I ignore it, it won’t come this year…
      These poor cats don’t know what to think of this dog. They have never been around one before!
